What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

MyAudioSession headphones are engineered to create the optimum sound, be more comfortable, be super easy to take with you and are tailored to enhance the way you hear your music, films and games! Discover what makes us different....

 

   

   

Like fingerprints or DNA, each person’s ears and hearing ability are unique. So why are we currently sold a "one size fits all" within the headphone market?

As we use our sense of hearing everyday, our ears can become less sensitive to certain frequencies due to fatigue and damage. Important details in our music, films and games can be lost due to the resulting imbalance in our ears.

Often, people will simply turn up the volume to compensate, but the frequencies which were acceptable before could now create a sense of audio distortion, increasing the amount of listening fatigue and potentially damaging your sense of hearing even further. 

Now with MyAudioSession you can immerse yourself in enriched audio which is uniquely optimized for you and without the limitation of wires.

We have licensed and integrated Aumeo Audio’s patented technology into our headphones and our mobile app, which aims to balance the user’s listening profile and enhance their audio enjoyment without the issues that volume adjustment and traditional equalizers create.

Test your ears by letting the app know when you can hear the low beeps across certain frequency ranges. The app will then sync this information with your headphones, which will then adapt to your profile, making sure you hear your music the way it was intended.

From humble beginnings as a Hong Kong-based company, the members of The Audio Session (Antonio International Ltd.) have been involved in the design and development of personal audio equipment with major industry leaders around the world for over 30 years.

Located in Hong Kong Science Park, we are continually inspired by the state-of-the-art environment and have been regularly collaborating with local tech teams to integrate advanced wireless and audio technology with our headphones.

Launched in 2017, The Audio Session brand was created with the purpose of providing an exceptional listening experience with thoughtfully-crafted and expertly-engineered headphones.

Our latest project, MyAudioSession, aims to unite our decades of audio expertise with innovative sound-personalization technology to create an acoustically superior headphone that can enrich the user’s enjoyment of music.

Risks and challenges

As with all hardware projects, there are always risks associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics. Unlike most startups and designer-centric ventures, the members of The Audio Session have already successfully brought thousands of headphones and audio hardware products to market (under Antonio International Limited).

With over 30 years of experience, we have built robust, long-lasting relationships with industry-leading suppliers, manufacturers and shipping partners to ensure a smooth process from design to fulfilment. We are confident in our ability to identify and mitigate any potential issues that may arise, so that we can produce and deliver MyAudioSession on time.
